[Bug] Insertion point does not jump to tapped location

Platform

[X] iOS
[ ] Android

Obsidian Mobile version: v1.0.5


In Edit mode, when I dismiss the keyboard, scroll to another location in the document, and then tap, the insertion point appears in its last location, not where I tapped, and the window scrolls to the insertion point location, forcing me to scroll once again to find my desired edit location. This is annoying, disconcerting, and unexpected behavior on iOS.

This doesn’t happen on mine. Have you tried restarting the app or disabling plugins?

Make sure you’re not visiting Preview mode in the process, just dismissing the keyboard.

Yeah, I’m using the button on the mobile toolbar (I rarely use Preview mode).

Right, that’s the Preview button. Instead, tap the “hide” button on the keyboard.

That’s not the Preview button — it’s shaped like a keyboard, it dismisses the keyboard, and it does not trigger Preview mode. There is no “hide” button on the keyboard on iPhone. I’ll try the button you mean on iPad to see what happens.

Problem confirmed on iPad.

As a workaround, you can use the keyboard-dismiss button on the mobile toolbar.
